We cut to them inside Christine's office. She's sitting, he's standing, and it's totally obvious he's her adored big brother. Christine says, "I thought maybe I'd see you at Dad's funeral." Kellerman says, "That man died long before his heart stopped. The funeral was a formality." Christine grins at him. He drinks coffee and protests, "It's true." She asks if Kellerman would like to know how their mother is, and Kellerman sardonically replies, "Just because someone spits you out of their crotch doesn't make them your mother. That woman is insane. Do you remember? Have you suppressed it all?" Christine protests that she was there every day -- "unlike you." Kellerman points out that he was there for 18 years. Christine replies simply, "I was ten, Paul. You were all I had in the world, and you just left me there." I find it very striking that in the same episode where Mahone and C-Note are shown to be funhouse-mirror versions of one another, we're also learning that Kellerman is the anti-Linc. Where Burrows truncated his own opportunities to expand Michael's, Kellerman got out and stayed out.
Kellerman finally says, "I'm sorry. If I could have taken you with me, I would have, and I've thought about you every day." He strokes her face affectionately; it is weirdly reminiscent of the tenderness he showed Dr. Sara in between bouts of trying to drown her. As Christine pulls herself together, Kellerman pauses, then says, "I'm not the brother you remember. I've changed in a... really bad way." That is a... really impressive understatement. Kellerman continues, saying he's at a point where he doesn't know what good or bad is. He warns her, "And I am going to do something -- I have to do something -- that a lot of people are going to think is horrible." As Christine says, "Paul... " Kellerman looks down and says, with an intense, sincere tenderness, "And you just remember the brother you grew up with. You just remember him. You're my sister, Christine. I love you." He kisses her quickly and walks away.
Cut to False Cooper explaining to his tailers AND Mahone that thanks to being knocked out cold, he has no idea where anyone is. That's okay -- he's not going to be punished or anything. I mean, look at how many times Agent Kim has screwed up, and he's still nestled in the bowels of the One World Conspiracy. Mahone calls Kim and cheerily tells him, "You brought me in too late -- they're gone." Kim has an It figures look. He commands, "Then find them," but the order lacks his usual brio. Mahone muses, "The brothers come back to a city that's 15 miles from the prison they escaped from. Why would they do that?" Kim thinks they have designs on Madame Evil. Mahone says, "And of all people, they want to meet with someone from the attorney general's office." Kim sighs, "Your point?" Mahone replies, "Burrows is innocent?" Kim patronizes him with, "You're good, Alex. As advertised. No one's truly innocent. You of all people should know that." What about babies? Or is conspiring to wet a diaper every few hours considered evil now? I mean, other than by the parent who just changed the little mite. We cut to Mahone, looking peeved as he realizes how thoroughly he's been lied to.
